The Tiong Bahru estate has always been a historical hotspot, with architecture dating back to the 1930s. Its content and offerings, however, have been updated with infusions of modernity over the years – from an excellent transport network which whisks you to your workplace in town in under 15 minutes, to quaint brunch spots where you can catch up with friends and nearby nature attractions to escape the city’s hustle and bustle. Tiong Bahru is at the top of the list of most convenient places in Singapore to live, work and play.

You’re well-connected to the things that matter

Seamless connectivity via the MRT and bus services means you can wake up at 8am and still make it to work in Raffles Place, City Hall or Marina Bay by 8.30am. Best of all, with Outram Park station and Raffles Place MRT interchange just a few stops away, travelling to anywhere on the island is a breeze.

In recent years, Tiong Bahru has also seen an influx of quirky and sophisticated bars, shops and cafés. Ah Bong’s Italian, Big Mama Korean Restaurant, and the House of Peranakan Petit are just a few of the many different cuisines you can find. One for music lovers, Curated Records, as its name suggests, stocks a carefully curated range of vinyl records, from mainstream hits to indie selections. While Fleas and Trees showcases a diverse collection of homewares, clothes and accessories which its owners have lovingly assembled from their travels.

For those who love nature, there are also several wonderful green lungs nearby. Mount Faber Park is one of Singapore’s oldest parks and offers a panoramic view of the southern part of Singapore and the southern islands. The Henderson Waves bridge, on the other hand, is a stunning wave-like bridge that is also the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore at 36m above ground. It connects Mount Faber Park to Telok Blangah Hill Park and is part of the 5km-long Southern Ridges Walk. Of course, not forgetting the 157-year-old Singapore Botanic Gardens, which recently was named Singapore’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site.

What’s next for Tiong Bahru?

By April 2016, the longstanding Tiong Bahru Plaza will also reopen after a S$90 million revamp. A new terrace on the fourth floor will be an inviting spot to chill out with friends, while a spacious new playground on the third floor will delight children. The rejuvenated mall boasts 155 shops across five storeys, as well as an air-conditioned, two-storey link with more shops to Central Plaza, the mall’s office tower.
